Mr Alan Moody

30th November 1943 - 26th January 2020

Family flowers only please

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Alan on the 26th of January. Alan was loved by all who had the privilege of calling him family or friend. He was a beloved husband, father and grandfather. We are grateful that he suffered a short illness and died at home with the people he loved. Alan's funeral will be on 28th February at Midday at St Mary's Church in Selly Oak, followed by a burial at a beautiful woodland meadow site in Temple Balsall. Alan loved nature and the outdoors and we felt that this was a fitting place to lay him to rest, surrounded by butterflies, otters, foxes, badgers, trees and wild flowers. The wake will then be held close to the burial ground in Knowle at The Greswolde Arms. Details for all of these venues are below. We have decided to ask for donations instead of flowers as there were a number of charities close to Alan's heart. There will be a donations' box at the church, or you can send donations to the funeral directors (details above for W H Scott & Son) who will collect on our behalf. If you wish to send a donation via the funeral directors, please make cheques payable to the relevant charity (details below are correct for the cheque). Birmingham St Mary's Hospice - the team from St Mary's Hospice showed huge compassion and kindness during Alan's final weeks and we will be forever grateful to them. Parkinson's UK - many of you will know that Alan was diagnosed with Parkinson's a couple of years ago and was determined to not let it stop him living life to the full. British Heart Foundation - Alan suffered a heart attack at the end of 2017 and was passionate about the work done by BHF to support ongoing research into this area. Cancer Research UK - following Alan's brief battle with lung cancer, it's clear how vital the work is by organisations such as this one. We will be offering food at The Greswolde Arms and we would love it if you could join us. To help us make sure we cater for the correct numbers it would be great if you could let us know whether you are planning to come along. Please contact Ruth on r.moody@farscapedevelopment.co.uk or 07931 502519 or Louise on louisellewellyn2011@hotmail.co.uk or 07890 988020. We very much hope you can join us. Please do feel free to forward this notice on - we hope we've remembered everyone but it would be good to make sure. Ruth, Helen and Louise.
